NRG Energy Joins CCX

by | Jun 1, 2007

NRG Energy has joined companies such as Bayer, Ford, IBM and Intel as a member of the Chicago Climate Exchange, a greenhouse gas emissions allowance trading system.

“Joining the Chicago Climate Exchange is part of our ongoing program to increase our carbon awareness, track our emissions, and address climate change proactively,” said David Crane, President and CEO, NRG Energy, Inc. “A cap-and-trade system, like CCX’s, will minimize the cost of achieving carbon reductions because it allows the lowest cost emission reductions to be used to help meet reduction targets.”

NRG was one of five power companies that issued an RFP in February seeking greenhouse gas offset proposals for more than 10 million tons of carbon dioxide-equivalent emissions sourced from projects within the U.S.
